Bug-Y2K Re:The Job Creators at Work (91 comments)

As far as I can tell you are dead wrong. Very few imports, almost all local hires.

Apple May Build Oregon Data Center Next To Facebook's

Bug-Y2K Re:better a little more north (91 comments)

Industrial rates in the Columbia Basin (read Oregon & Washington states) are LESS than 2 per kW/hr. This is why the pacific northwest is the prime location for datacenters in the USA.

Facebook May Make Tiny Town a Data Center Mecca

Bug-Y2K Re:The natives probably won't be getting the jobs. (136 comments)

"The Prineville FB data center employs 35 people, but the tech jobs were all filled out of area"

Wrong, and wrong again. Just because you live nearby doesn't mean you have a clue what is going on inside. More than half the full-time tech jobs have been filled locally.

Additionally the site has been under construction for over a year and a half employing hundreds of people, both locally and from all over the Pacific Northwest. All those folks have been spending their money in Crook County, hotels, restaurants, bars, etc. Every day for the past 18 months. I've seen Central Oregon before this project began, and since - the economic benefits have been palpable and positive.

You are wrong. They will, and they do.

Datacenter work is the "blue collar" end of the IT spectrum. With the right toolset in place, anyone can be trained to do it.

Purely decorative. They are not "security barriers" they are just decorative concrete slabs.

Facebook Opens Their Data Center Infrastructure

Bug-Y2K Re:Faceboook (90 comments)

Google has never made their *datacenter* designs, or even their locations public. They have shared their server design, or at least an outdated one.

From what I've heard from Ex-Googlers they never actually deployed the container concept beyond one half, of one of their many, many facilities.
